We've reached the citadel by ferry fron santa teresa di gallura...50 euros aller- retour The visit of the citadel was quick because of the high number of people. We recommend the defence wall at the entrance of the bay and harbour And the most beatifful walk was on the cliffs. Accesible even for someone less trained. U need good shoes... More

Beautiful citadel a must see if you are visiting the south of Corsica. In early July 2016 they had local artists illuminate the citadel, it's walks and wall with lights and interactive exhibits for all to participate in and enjoy! If you are lucky you can find parking near the harbor and walk up 2 steep alleys that will get... More

Great stop in Bonifacio and worth visiting to get a historical angle on the town. Worth buying the pass for multiply attractions (eg Citadel, steps of Arafon). Citadel has lovely, shaded avenues, shops and restaurants.

To appreciate the place take a boat trip. Very good, but don't bother with the glass bottom boat - it costs more and just adds half an hour bobbing about looking at uniform small uninteresting fish, which you can see anyway from the side or in the harbour. Parking - bit of a nightmare, but if you come into the... More

Back after 35 years in Bonifacio. It was a real pleasure to climb back these stairs to the Citadel where you can enjoy magnificent view of the city, he coastal line and sea. Stop at St Rock Chapel, do the Aragon stairs and walk around the lanes of this old part of town.

The photos you see do not do Bonfacio justice, it is spectacular. It is also spectacularly busy and parking is a horror! Queues as you enter the lower marina area and traffic jams. Then a gunfight to park, sometimes a distance away. Steep walk up to the citadel but worth it. Just be prepared for the crowds.c

This 'haut ville', perched on overhanging cliffs in places, has to be one of the most spectacularly sited anywhere (though you have to take a boat trip to really see it). Huge walls surround it, best appreciated from the marina below. The Petit Train from the marina is an easy and fairly cheap way to get up, and quite frequent.... More

The whole location is wonderful, with historic walls, gates, churches etc. it is not necessary to pay the entrance money to the actual citadel to enjoy the Bonifacio experience.
